Value and Access Senior Manager


What you will do

Lets do this. Lets change the world! In the context of a rapidly evolving payer environment, Amgens increasing emphasis on geographic expansion, acquisition/licensing as drivers of growth, and a commitment to demonstrate product value, Amgen requires an increasingly sophisticated reimbursement and pricing capability to support market access. The capabilities of the Integrated Access Strategy (IAS) group, within the Global Value Access & Policy (GVA&P) function, positions Amgen for future success against this business-critical imperative. This team is responsible for strategic planning of value and access for all Amgen molecules in development, beginning in Phase I-II and extending throughout commercialization across the Amgen portfolio. This work also includes lifecycle planning and access support for selected in-the-market products. Additionally, the team is responsible for global strategic pricing, including recommendations for global price bands and indication/country launch sequence. We are currently seeking a Senior Manager for IAS who will be assigned to Early Oncology Pipeline Access Strategy Leads (ASL) to support the payer planning process, including the situation analysis, payer/pricing research, and the creation of payer strategic plans, and pull through of these plans. The Senior Manager will be responsible for project execution including, but not limited to, analysis of customer trends which inform access and pricing opportunities, vendor selection and management, and generating final documentation of project results. Asset responsibilities will be flexible based on business need and the dynamic prioritization of the early oncology pipeline but will initially focus on therapies developed for lung cancer. In addition to product-specific responsibilities, the Senior Manager will participate in one or more portfolio projects to support the Oncology franchise regarding developing partnerships with payers, health systems, and policy makers. Such projects will require working cross-functionally within Amgen to further organizational goals within the Oncology franchise. The Senior Manager may be assigned, as business needs dictate, to provide the broad range of pricing and reimbursement activities mentioned above for some in-the-market products. The Senior Manager will work across functions to ensure a comprehensive view of his/her assigned products and create and maintain strong collaborative working relationships with key partners. These partners include colleagues in marketing, clinical development, health economics, regulatory, operations, and government affairs.

Key Responsibilities:

Conduct situation analysis and payer/pricing research of external pricing and reimbursement environment regarding multiple hematological and solid tumors, and synthesize relevant information to develop strategic plans for the product/assets.
